Yes, it's the very best!!! The light green buds starting to finally open, setting the tone for all the magnificent colors to follow. I am so amazed and inspired by all the beautiful photos and helpful comments. What a great site to sit at night and look at everyone's beautiful work, after a days work in the garden is done.

This weekend calls for sunny and 75+! I just came in from planting some hakone grass in between my emerging daylilies, around my lampost. We just received our first Spring Hills shipment of hakone grass and rudbeckia today. The boxes are on their way and I can get planting this weekend! :-)

I went out to look for signs of hosta this morning, but don't see any yet, although my dafodils are blooming. Here's what I did see poking up: brunera, anemone, some fern, bleeding heart, and columbine.

There is a sunny section of this bed. I put some oriental poppies in last fall. Would someone advise when they should appear because I'm on a vole watch for those plants as well.

Hi - I'm new here - so good to find some fellow zone - fivers! We took a walk this morning (husband and I) and the wild onion greens are up in clumps in the woods! My peas are poking up finally after a foot of snow last week.

We live in Groveland township - about 60 miles north of Detroit and 20 miles south of Flint. There are large hills on the south of the state land connected to our land - so we still have ice long after most people's daffs are blooming.

Denver has started seeing some quick greening up since our snow storm last week. I have some early tulips up and blooming with many more on the way! Daylilies have started to poke up, as well as a few lilies. Just barely though. Some new growth on roses, but with the late cold snaps things are getting a slow start. Did my very first lawn mowing of the season this morning, however, I'm the only one on the block that has a lot of active grass growing. They'll catch up in a few weeks. Trees are just beginning to leaf out. My many varieties of Clematis have been growing for a few weeks and have a few inches of growth on them. Grape hyacinths started blooming about a week ago with a lot more to bloom soon. A warm day today and tomorrow, but another storm is supposed to be here after that. Hopefully it'll be in the form of rain and not snow again!

I am in southwest Michigan. My plants in the butterfly garden have all started growing. I can not wait for the butterflies and humming birds to come back. I so bad want to get the veggie garden planted.

My Hostas are starting to pop up too....You can stand there and almost watch them grow! LOL!

Justy put in a strawberry pyramid last Sunday and the plants have grown a good 3 inches with all the rain. All my hostas are up now. Can't wait for the great weather this weekend!
